The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare has received the report of the Ministerial Committee on Restructuring of the National Youth Games (NYG) set up at the end of the 6th edition of the tournament which held at Ilorin, the Kwara State Capital.

“NYG speaks to grassroots sports development as the bulk of those who go for sports festival are discovered from there. If three of the hundreds of talents seen at Ilorin are picked up, they can bring a lot of honours to the country in future international games”, the Minister said.

Dare stated further that with a view to stemming the danger of age cheat in the game of sports in Nigeria, the Ministry had written to the Nigeria Identity Management Commission (NIMC) for collaboration as it had zero tolerance for any form of fradulent practice in sporting competitions.

While stressing that no stone will be left unturned in nipping the trend in the bud, he said “when grassroots sports is gotten right, every other competition will find its bearing as it will boost the discovery and development of future talents in the development of sports in Nigeria”.
